Groom of Eris

“This isn't real,” the voice says, Whispering through the ether of darkness: A black void that occupies my mind. It is without form this voice speaks, No consciousness but my own To sustain its malevolence, Subsisting entirely on my paranoia Because I don't know how to exist Free of the anxiety born from my insecurity....

The Judge

My life is thus: The judge sits at his bench, Demeaning and destructive; His verdict offers no justice, His sentence serves no rehabilitation. Before him, I would be a prisoner Shackled in solitary evermore; Any attempt at release Would be mocked and chided Because, in his words, I am worthless, No longer any good to... Continue Reading →

Can't see how I'll survive tomorrow When yesterday's gaffes still ruin my psyche, Laying waste to this corporation of self-confidence, Always reminding what I've missed out on. It's like my memory of you is parasitic, Latching onto every thought and sucking it dry So that there's nothing in my mind but you And a ridicule... Continue Reading →
